Doing Business in Asia: Local Cuisine

th_balutTo Eat or Not to Eat!

There is little doubt if you are visiting some of the exciting manufacturing hot spots of the world you are going to come across some local delicacies that may seem unusual or even just plain disgusting. Whether it be balut (above) common in the Philippines but available around many parts of South East Asia, scorpion, sea slug or even cockroaches it never fails to amaze me what is eaten and enjoyed across cultures.

 

My advise, jump in an give it a go, worst case you will have a story to tell for many years to come.
